Slightly unprepossessing from the outside, this restaurant is wonderful. The staff were fantastic, attentive despite the place being pretty busy and language being a slight barrier. The food was first class throughout, the antipasti were imaginative and the pasta impeccable. Go.

This is definitely a place to find. It's not easy as it's down a small side street but persevere- you won't be disappointed . The food is beautifully cooked and authentically Puglian. Service is brilliant. You may find not having a menu uncomfortable - the...More

We stopped here for lunch based on its reviews and we were not disappointed. This is a local place, with the daily menu written on a chalkboard with no prices. We ordered the antipasti and were served about thirteen plates of food with a jug...More
